Survey and monitoring of usage of chest radiography and chest ultrasonography in the cardiothoracic perioperative setting. Zlatka Belamarić, Aatif Husain, Giampaolo Martinelli, Gerry Van Rensburg, Greta Giuliano, Suresh Sanapala. St Bartholomews Hospital, Barts NHS Trust, London, United Kingdom. Introduction. Respiratory complications remain a leading cause of post cardiac surgical morbidity and can prolong hospital stay and increase costs. Conventional lung imaging in critically ill patients are bedside CXR and lung CT. Lung US is also a tool for assessing lung status in critically ill patients and can be easily used and repeated at the bedside, allowing the effects of therapy to be monitored, as highlighted in the International evidence-based recommendations for point-of-care lung ultrasound published in 2012.. Objectives. 1) To survey if the LUS is utilised in the contexts where it is supported by the literature to be superior and more effective than CXR. 2) To compare if the different ...
Cardiovascular complications are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing major noncardiac surgeries. It is estimated that 20-40% of patients at risk for cardiac events will experience perioperative cardiac ischemia, conferring a nine-fold increase in risk of perioperative cardiac death, myocardial infarction or unstable angina. This is a serious concern in North America. In the United States, about 1.5 of the 30 million patients undergoing noncardiac surgery each year will experience cardiovascular morbidity.1 Since many of these patients have identifiable risk factors for cardiac ischemia, research efforts have been channeled toward finding modifiable risk factors and introducing pharmacological interventions that may offer cardiovascular protection during the perioperative period. Several small clinical trials have examined the perioperative use of nitrates2 and calcium channel blockers,3 but these did not show a significant reduction in the incidence of cardiac ...
NESPS 2017 Abstracts: Perioperative Considerations to Maximize Aesthetic Outcomes in the Setting of Autologous Microsurgical Breast Reconstruction
The authors present a safety evaluation of the perioperative use of recombinant activated factor VII (rFVIIa) in a series of subarachnoid hemorrhage patients undergoing microsurgical aneurysm clipping
Most of the developments in perioperative medicine the 20th century were focused on the establishment of standard monitors, biomarkers, and outcomes measures for the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, with marked improvements in perioperative safety. The fields of anesthesiology and perioperative medicine have now shifted to the consideration of the nervous system.
Although the target specific oral anticoagulants (TSOAC) have been validated in clinical trials and approved for several years in the U.S., high level data regarding certain aspects of their use are lacking. As a result, clinicians have had to look to low level reports, expert opinion and pharmacokinetic information for guidance in situations such as bleeding and perioperative management. Because the experience has grown and opinions change this has been a moving and controversial target. Keeping up with continuously evolving recommendations has been a challenge. Thus it is appropriate to revisit the topic of perioperative management ...
There are four main categories of anesthesia used during surgery and other procedures: general anesthesia, regional anesthesia, sedation (sometimes called monitored anesthesia care), and local anesthesia.
The best assurance of a good postoperative outcome is that the patient is in optimal condition prior to surgery, as determined by the patients internist or cardiologist.

The impact of adding bevacizumab to perioperative chemotherapy in patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) undergoing liver resection is yet to be defined. A retrospective review of our patient records showed that the addition of bevacizumab did not increase morbidity or mortality related to liver resection. Pathologic complete response (CR) is associated with prolonged survival. Background: Patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) and liver metastases benefit from perioperative chemotherapy and liver resection. The potential benefit of adding bevacizumab is yet to be defined. The impact of bevacizumab on liver resection complications has been explored in a small number of retrospective studies. Methods: The records of patients with CRC and liver metastases who underwent liver resection and had received perioperative chemotherapy were reviewed. Complications were reported separately for 2 groups (chemotherapy alone vs chemotherapy and bevacizumab). Survival outcomes (progression-free survival [PFS] ...
BACKGROUND: Recent clinical trials have demonstrated the benefit and feasibility of perioperative chemotherapy for treatment of gastroesophageal adenocarcinoma (GEA). Despite convincing results, patients entering such trials usually represent only a fraction of those who are candidates for treatment. Confirmation of trial-reported effects and tolerability in unselected cohorts is therefore required. The aims of this study were to confirm the safety and efficacy of perioperative chemotherapy for resectable GEA and to delineate risks of treatment failure. METHODS: We conducted a national retrospective cohort analysis of patients admitted for perioperative chemotherapy for resectable GEA. Regimens were epirubicin and capecitabine combined with oxaliplatin or cisplatin. RESULTS: The intention-to-treat analysis included 271 patients. Eighty-seven percent of patients completed preoperative chemotherapy, and 63 % received radical resection. Age ,70 years (odds ratio 2.58) and hypoalbuminemia (odds ...
The "Perioperative Inflammation and Infection" group tackles core questions in clinical perioperative medicine with basic science and translational means. The group has longstanding experience and contributed amply to the field. Successful integration of Junior Researchers and publication of data in the Top-Journals in the field are our goal. To that end biomarkers for post operative complications are identified in clinical studies and small animal models of such complications are being developed. These projects are developed in close cooperation with our colleagues from Hannover (MHH), Groningen (UMCG) and Stanford University. Several academic departments for Anesthesiology in Germany are also among our cooperation partners for clinical studies. Interprofessional education is the major focus in teaching. We actively cooperate with the Hochschule Osnabrück in a Robert Bosch Foundation project seeking to improve coeducation of medical and physiotherapy students. Please see the link in our ...

Each year, over 2 million patients are admitted to hospitals with some form of congestive heart failure (HF). It is estimated that the current prevalence of HF is over 5.8 million in the United States and over 23 million worldwide.1 Over half a million new cases are diagnosed every year in the United States, and the chance of developing HF in a lifetime is 1 in 5.2,3 A diagnosis of HF independently increases the risk of death, and HF is noted on 1 in 8 death certificates. In the Framingham Heart Study, a new diagnosis of HF carried an approximate 30-day mortality of 10%, while the 1-year mortality approaches 30%.3 HF is predominantly a geriatric disease: 80% of the HF deaths occur in individuals aged ≥65 years.4,5 HF is known to be a major risk factor in perioperative medicine6 and is seen in 2.5% to 10% of noncardiac surgical patients.7-9 Advances in medical care allow people to live longer with more comorbidity, such that patients with HF are often hospitalized for other conditions.

Richardson K; Levett DZH; Jack S; Grocott MPW. British Journal Of Anaesthesia [Br J Anaesth] 2017 Dec 01; Vol. 119 (suppl_1), pp. i34-i43.. There is a consistent relationship between physical activity, physical fitness, and health across almost all clinical contexts, including the perioperative setting. Physiological measurements obtained during physical exercise may be used to infer the risk of adverse outcome after major surgery. In particular, data obtained from perioperative cardiopulmonary exercise testing have an expanding role in perioperative care. Such information may be used to inform a variety of changes in clinical practice, including interventions that may reduce the risk of perioperative adverse events. Specifically, for patients undergoing major cancer surgery there is a complex interplay between different cancer treatments, including neoadjuvant therapies (chemo- and chemo- plus radiotherapy), surgery, and physical fitness, and the modulation of these relationships by ...
Outcome Measure: sleep quality was assessed pre- and post- four weeks of exercise program usingthe Pittsburgh sleep quality index (PSQI) and ventilatory efficiency was assessed using cardiopulmonary exercise test.Results HF patients (II-III NYHA), mean age 69.4±4.2 years, body mass index 23.7±2.7 kg/m2, ejection fraction 32.7±4.5 %, VO2peak 16.27±4.2 ml/kg/min, VE/VCO2 30.81±12.7. The mean of global PSQI score ranged between 8.2 to 11.4 with a mean of 9.7±3.4 which indicates that the participants experienced sleep disturbance. The post-exercise assessment showed that patients have reported a significant improvement of all PSQI domains compared with baseline assessment (p,0.05). VO2peak significantly increased from 16.27±4.2 pre-intervention to 20.03±2.6 ml/kg/min post-intervention (p=0.049) whereas VE/VCO2 slightly decreased with a non-significant difference at the end of the study program (p=0.594) indicating animprovement of ventilator efficiencyand overall cardiorespiratory ...
OBJECTIVES. To evaluate the clinical efficacy of carprofen like perioperative analgesic in dogs when is used alone or combined with opioids. MATERIALS. Sixty dogs which need general anaesthesia for various diagnostic or therapeutic reasons were included in this study. Thirty of them were anesthetized with morphine (0,2 mg/kg IM),propofol(3 mg/kg IV) and isoflurane. The others were anesthetized with the same protocol but carprofen (4 mg/kg IV) was administered 30 minutes before induction. Some cardiovascular and respiratory variables were studied every 5 minutes during the procedure. Recovery times and perioperative pain control were also evaluated.. RESULTS. Carprofen reduced anaesthetic requirements. Intraoperative pain control was best achieved when it was used combined with morphine. Cardiovascular stability was best in the carprofen-morphine group. But the respiratory depression was higher. All cardiorespiratory variables were within normal values. Postoperative analgesia was better with ...
Propofol decreases systemic blood pressure with corresponding changes in cardiac output and systemic vascular resistance. The blood pressure effects may be overt in hypovolemic patients, elderly patients and also patients with coronary artery disease compromising the left ventricle. Adequate hydration is often recommended to offset this effect of propofol. Unlike the effect of thiopental on blood pressure compansated by the increase in heart rate, propofol does not change heart rate. Furthermore, bradycardia and asystoli may also occur most probably because of the reduction in sympathetic outflow more than parasympathetic. In the clinical setting, increasing pump flows, increasing hematocrit concentrations (transfusion of PRBCs or use of ultrafiltration for hemoconcentration), or increasing hemoglobin saturation and the amount of dissolved oxygen (increasing the inspired oxygen concentration [FIO2]) can improve delivery of oxygen (Lango&Mrozinski,2010). Delivery of oxygen during CPB is typically ...
AIMS To determine whether statins can reduce perioperative morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing non-cardiac vascular surgery. METHODS A search using Pubmed was performed to identify reports in English. The search terms were: statins, perioperative morbidity, perioperative mortality and vascular surgery. We excluded studies dealing with the effect of statins in cardiac surgery. Retrieved articles were manually searched. RESULTS Current evidence shows that statins decrease perioperative morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing non-cardiac vascular surgery. Any benefit probably occurs soon (within a month) after initiating treatment. CONCLUSIONS Appropriately designed trials need to confirm the beneficial effect of perioperative statin therapy in various patient categories. The optimal duration and dose of perioperative statin therapy should be defined.
Despite increasingly sophisticated perioperative management, cardiovascular complications continue to be major challenges for the clinician. As a growing number of elderly patients with known coronary artery disease (CAD) or with risk factors for CAD are undergoing non-cardiac surgery, cardiovascular complications will remain a significant clinical problem in the future.. The overall objective of this thesis was to study the incidence of myocardial damage and perioperative adverse cardiac events, to determine predictors of poor outcome and to assess the effect of a medical intervention in patients at risk undergoing non-cardiac surgery.. The studies in this thesis were conducted on a total of 952 patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery. Studies I and IV were multicenter studies; whereas the patients included in studies II and III underwent non-cardiac surgery at Linkoping University Hospital, Sweden. The correlation between postoperative myocardial damage and short- and long-term outcome were ...
